Of course, graduating to an true “Backcountry” aviator is a process.  Every pilot I have ever talked to is always willing to learn something new.  Anyone who isn’t probably won’t be long for this aviation world.  The information available is seemingly endless and I always feel like there is something to take away from every experience.

I recently received my student certificate that was on hold due to some medical issues.  This certificate is what I have been waiting for to be able to “solo”, or fly sans instructor!  I waited for almost an entire year for that moment, where my instructor left me to fly the pattern for at least 3 takeoffs and landings.  I set up my camera before I called the tower for permission to taxi, and I was able to capture the moment.  Here it is for you to enjoy:

I intend to always be a student, although my ticket may say otherwise.

  1. Evan, cool video. Where’s the next video? Where’s the next video with the new plane?

    Yeah, I’m a heckler totally. 🙂

    Seriously, great stuff man, fly safe!
